Malvasia di Casorzo Dolce Stil Novo DOC
Dolce Stil Novo is an ode to the most important Italian literary movement of the thirteenth century, created by Dante Alighieri, whose main theme was love. This sweet wine is made from Malvasia di Casorzo, an extremely rare red Malvasia, exclusively cultivated in this particular area of Italy. Light cherry-colored, fizzy, and delicately sweet, the wine’s elegant floral aromas recall fresh rose petals, raspberries, blackberries, and redcurrant; the fragrant, grapey flavors are cleansing rather than cloying on the palate. Best served cold either as an aperitif or with dessert; it is wonderful with berries, such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or cranberries.
